Is marijuana helpful for ADHD?



A study completed by Kings College in London suggests there is little cognitive benefit. Improvement of hyperactivity and impulsivity was minimal. What the study did not comment on was ambition and drive to succeed. The problem many doctors and psychologists have with marijuana use for ADHD is that patients can become numb and complacent. If you find marijuana to be tremendously helpful for your symptoms of inattention or hyperactivity, you should consider further evaluation for anxiety and depression as the underlying cause.
